The British Spares Warehouse in Mahana, Nelson has been outfitted with SOLAR powered hot water and wall heating by Solar Rosa Home, technology and efficiency leaders in this fast developing field.
State-of-the-art, Solar Rosa Home supplied, solar collection panels on the warehouse roof provide the grunt to...
...power up the monster 1000 litre hot water cylinder supplying all our domestic hot water requirements as well as circulating hot water through....
...the industry leading in-wall heating system. Each separate heating circuit is one continuous tube for a guaranteed leak-free life.
The finished solid plaster walls act as giant radiators keeping us super cosy through the winter months. The warehouse was originally built to be a working apple shed with no thought for insulation or creature comforts. It was stripped back to the bare bones then fully lined and insulated with sustainably produced, eco-friendly materials and the latest thermally broken, double glazed windows were installed. Power savings from our previous concrete bunker in Silverstream are in the order of 3000kw per month through the winter Smiley faces all round :-))
